  • The Australian Outback exhibit at Singapore Zoo features grey kangaroos, wallabies and the frill-necked lizard, which you can spot on jeep rides around the compound. In Cat Country you'll see jaguars, leopards and lions through large glass-fronted enclosures. The Critters Longhouse is an air-cooled building where spotted mousedeer, jinkajous, Malayan porcupines and ground squirrels are seen scurrying around. Elephants of Asia is a one-hectare exhibit with raised boardwalks that allow views of the elephants enjoying their mud wallow and bathing pool.

    The Fragile Forest exhibit shows the connectedness and fragility of rainforest and mangrove ecosystems in a 20,000-cubic-metre area. Exotic insects buzz around while mousedeer, fruit bats, iguanas and more make their home here among the lush forest plants and trees. A display of the Asmat tribe of Irian Jaya highlights their close relationship with nature. Singapore Zoo's Primate Kingdom area has several monkey species including Javan langurs, colobus monkey, cotton-top tamarins, lion-tailed macaque, patas monkey, brown capuchin and Celebes macaque, which can be seen foraging for food and hanging around in the jungle setting. The odd-looking proboscis monkeys of Borneo have a separate display and breeding area to themselves, as do Orang-utans and the Hamadryas baboons from the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia. 

    The Polar Bear exhibit gives visitors a thrilling close-up view of them swimming, while the White Tiger exhibit offers the chance to see the lovely siblings Omar, Winnie and Jippie playing around in their large compound. Reptile Garden features a range of scaly creatures, including the Komodo dragon, Aldabra giant tortoise, rhino iguana and false gharials, while a visit to Wild Africa offers views of the white rhino, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes and the fearsome African lion among others.

    The shows, including Splash Safari and Elephants at Work and Play are not only entertaining, but also keep the creatures busy developing their instinctual skills and strengthening bonds with their trainers. An added adventure for children at Singapore Zoo is the Rainforest Kidzworld, where kids can explore dino park, take a ride on a flying fox or water ferry, or enjoy playing with the friendly goats, ponies, falabellas and bunnies before taking a snack break at Ben & Jerry's or KFC.
